The Day of Islam: The Annihilation of America and the Western World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In two previous books, Osama's Revenge and The Al Qaeda Connection, this seasoned investigative reporter revealed the alarming potential for nuclear terrorism on U.S. soil and the sinister connections among organized crime, illegal immigrants, and al Qaeda. Now, he broadens his focus beyond al Qaeda to provide readers with newly uncovered information on terrorist activities in Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, other Muslim countries - and our neighbor Canada! What emerges is a harrowing picture of international terrorist activities, all aimed at the destruction of the United States and the collapse of the Western world. This cataclysm will usher in "the Day of Islam," the dream of radical Muslims to see all of humankind fall in submission before the throne of Allah. Sure to be controversial, this shocking exposé sends a wake-up to Americans lulled into a false sense of security in the post-9/11 era.

Review:

"Islamic Jihadists have replaced the Soviets in the American nightmare of nuclear annihilation, and journalist/author Williams is back to report that such a scenario is closer at hand than one (or one's government) might think. Picking up where his last few titles left off (2006's Dunces of Doomsday, '05's The Al Qaeda Connection, '04's Osama's Revenge), Williams reveals the underlying narrative of news updates on terrorist activity, tying isolated acts to bin Laden's overall strategy to carry out an 'American Hiroshima.' Among profiles of purported Al Qaeda supporters (including Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Brazil's Lula de Silva), Williams examines interesting items like bin Laden's alleged location(a small village in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier); Al Qaeda's purchase of a nuclear 'suitcase bomb,' a Soviet leftover; and the role of Pakistan's Interservice Intelligence in the beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl (allegedly investigating nuclear trafficking between Al Qaeda and a Pakistani scientist). Though absorbing, Williams' approach reduces the proponents of Islamic jihad to violent, irrational stereotypes rather than exploring their worldview. A noteworthy guide to the workings of Islamic terrorism, this volume's colorful style obscures its serious intent." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Book News Annotation:

The "Day of Islam" to which Williams (director of Christian Relations for the ultra-Zionist group B'nai Elim) refers in this text is apparently the day when Islamic radicals turn "America into a sea of deadly radiation." He warns that this day is fast approaching in this fearmongering work that argues that Al Qaeda already has nuclear material and detonation devices obtained from Sudan and Russia, maintained with the aid of A.Q. Khan (the Pakistani nuclear scientist) and his network. He also describes domestic Muslims as a threat, describing Islamic paramilitary compounds spread through the United States. He further points the finger at Iran as another source of alarm and argues that the Lebanese nationalist Shia group, Hezbollah, is working with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni group, in South America. Many of his claims are extraordinary, to say the least, and therefore require solid evidence; but much of the material is poorly or dubiously sourced. Perhaps indicative of the larger arguments, he maintains his charges concerning the theft of large amounts of nuclear material from McMaster University's nuclear reactor, even as his former publisher (WND Books/Cumberland House Publishing) has described them as "without basis in fact," and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission stated that "We can confirm that there has never been a report of any nuclear material that has been lost or stolen from McMaster's reactor."
